Why the Workplace?
– Time spent at work
– Majority of people work
– Policies
– Supportive environment
– Access to services
– Return on investment (ROI)
© 2011 Chevron
Research
– The latest productivity research indicates that individuals with multiple risk
factors are absent more, injured more, and return to work more slowly than
individuals with fewer risk factors
– WELCOA lit review of 400 Wellness programs: Only 2 failed to have a
positive ROI
